Similarly, I will give Joe Lieberman $50 if he promises to stop hinting around about switching parties and just STFU until the day when he finds what he believes to be an appropriate pretext and then just announces. Personally, I'm looking forward to his book about how the Democratic Party has always stood for blind support of unprovoked invasions until . . . Things Changed and The Party Left Me.
